Hallmark doesn’t have a card for this occasion.
During this time, I was hoping the only stress I would be suffering would be gaining mastery of my new job now that I’m solo.
I never seem to get off that easily.
We’re still immersed in summer, which can only be summed up as funky, wet stank. So of course, our AC at home has been hit by lightning.
Then, as Spawn is starting school online, I have a neighbor who decided to play with a chainsaw and tear up some wires along the way.
Problem 1 is denied by the warranty company as an act of God, coverage denied. Fine, I have insurance but I need something in writing as to the problem so they can move forward.
The only thing they send me in writing is some bullshit that the AC wasn’t working before the contract in effect. Excuse me, what the fuck?
I don’t know about the rest of you, maybe it’s because I have no one to allocate some of the bullshit of life too…but I have gone beyond my limit of the incompetence, fraud, swindling, lying, cheating and all out fuckery that corporate America calls “customer service.”
What I’m saying is I want to burn this fucking company to the ground and the idiot handling my case with it.
Its now been almost a month of stank heat and suffering. I had to break down to buy a portable unit to make at least Spawn’s days less like hell. Their the ones suffering the most being at home all day.
Problem 2 is the internet. We didn’t know when we moved in we had a dickhead next door, didn’t notice his tiny penis, big truck, “trespassers will be shot” sign nor the fenced in German Shepard right next to the closest pole for both power and internet. It took four visits and a supervisor call to finally get one of those technical badasses who sees every problem as having a solution.
Now that Chainsaw Charlie is on the scene, we’re back to square one and already had one visit from technician ThumbUpHisAss who blew it off and said to call when the construction was done. What construction, you lazy fuck?
There are so many people out of work, why must dead weight hinder progress from those who can and will do? While those who won’t just waste time and space?
So being able to write means sitting in almost 90 degree room with no internet and no breeze. The storms are still going and I am so pissed I could really make a long list of people I’d love to hurt. I have zero empathy anymore and have lost my faith in karma.
When you’re the common man, the one who has never had the power of a retainer, or even a little bit of influence against large overbloated corporations who believe sending mass amounts of survey links asking to rate their customer service instead of actually providing any, what do you do?
In the grand scheme of things, I know my bitching is petty but at the same time, why does this little shit, this insignificant crap have to be blown to immense proportions just to get basic fucking common sense out these greedy sacks of shit? Provide the service you claim to do, that’s all!
With that in mind, I guess it’s really no wonder why no one can figure out how viruses work or why masks are essential or just even, wash your fucking hands?
We cannot even extend common decency and fairness when paid to.

With the hoarding and noise, I’m even hearing people here in the states trying to track down toilet paper to send to friends and family in Italy, Spain and those hit the hardest and on lockdown or quarantine.
Out of curiosity, I searched on Amazon to see what was available. At that very moment, the only toilet paper in stock, was this one and one other style of the same theme.
I checked again the next day and obviously Amazon is doings its best to get stuff back in stock. There was more in stock, though some is gouging either in price or shipping charges… but the trump butt paper was cheaper than the new options… and yet, its not selling like the others… Do people feel like his campaign will benefit by purchasing it? Do they feel idiocy is contagious? Do they just not want that face near any holes on their person, even the stinkiest?
I gave the blog a little facelift. I needed it. I needed the words bigger and clearer, and something… different.
I removed things we weren’t really using and I’m trying to figure out how to expand on things I wish to see used more. Comments and constructive criticism most certainly welcome.
I have been, for lack of a better word, so immersed into the bullshit of life that the last month has been the last real breath I’ve been able to … Continue reading oops, so i do it again… (g2)
